A recent study found that half of all young adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) also experience alcohol and other drug abuse. That is double the rate of the population in general. Dr. Nathan Valentine discusses the dynamics of working with ADHD and substance use disorders concurrently. Getting a better handle on substance abuse, effectively treating the ADHD, understanding the issues, and working together with the family and mental health professionals means covering all the bases in recovery. Nathan Valentine, MD, FAPA, is board-certified in addiction medicine and general psychiatry. Dr. Valentine serves as the medical director of the Herrington Center for Mental Health and Addiction Recovery at Rogers Behavioral Health in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin.
